Calgary Massage Therapy

Experience the soothing power of massage, a time-honored remedy for pain relief that goes beyond relaxation. As skilled hands work their magic, they knead away tension and stimulate blood flow, flushing out toxins and delivering much-needed nutrients to your muscles. This therapeutic touch not only melts away aches but also triggers the release of endorphins, your body’s natural painkillers. Whether it’s the gentle pressure easing tight knots or the rhythmic strokes calming your mind, massage offers a holistic approach to pain relief that rejuvenates both body and spirit, leaving you feeling revitalized and pain-free.

How Does Nassage Therapy Help with Pain?

Massages cause two major types of physiological changes in the body that promote healing, alleviate pain, and reduce stress. Together, these benefits trigger a relaxation response that alleviates stress, anxiety, and fatigue while also reducing bodily issues stemming from psychological and physical disorders.

Relaxation Response

The relaxation response is a state that the body reaches during gentle massages. In this state:

  • your breathing and heart rate slow down
  • blood pressure falls, the amount of stress hormones being released by the body decreases
  • muscles relax
  • and the production of serotonin—the ‘feel-good’ hormone of the body—increases

Mechanical Response

The mechanical responses of the body during massages cause an increase in lymph and blood circulation. Massages physically manipulate the soft tissues in the body, resulting in proper blood circulation, which helps deliver vital nutrients and oxygen to different parts of the body. Massage therapy also helps relax muscles, preventing contractions and muscle spasms. The mechanical response also helps reduce waste products from the body and reduces swelling.

How Massage Therapy Works

During massage therapy, a trained and certified professional uses varying degrees of pressure and movements on the skin to manipulate the body’s soft tissues, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other connecting tissues. It’s considered to be a part of integrative medicine and is increasingly used as a standard treatment for a multitude of medical conditions such as heart diseases, stomach problems, and fibromyalgia. Massage therapy can effectively reduce muscle tension, alleviate pain, relieve stress, induce relaxation, promote faster tissue healing, and nourish the skin.
